Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions
Do you associate Easter with giving to the Annie Armstrong offering? You may have asked yourself why should I give to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering? Because three out of four people in North America are lost. One hundred percent of dollars given to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering go to support the thousands of missionaries and their ministries in the United States and Canada. Our goal as a church is to give $11,000 to contribute to this offering. To date, $1,825 has been given.

Church Needs Assessment Update
The Church Needs Assessment Group wants the congregation to know that over 200 people completed the survey, while around 100 people attended the in-person Listening Sessions, and that is a tremendous response. We are working diligently with the survey responses and listening session inputs to produce a report to the Deacons and Church Leadership Council as quickly as possible. We ask for your continued patience as we work through the very considerable amount of feedback we received. We want you to know that we realize the importance of getting this report delivered as quickly as we can, and that we are working long hours to do that. We thank you for your kind patience as we do our work.
